Esker is one of my favorites. Only about a mile from my house, it one of my favorite places to run too, with really amaizing views of Wyman Lake and the Kennebec River.
According to Austin, the lake is warm enough to swim in, but I checked it and it is 45 degrees. I just can't take it yet. He is tougher than me, and a better swimmer.
If you squint and look at these next two pictures, you can see a white strip of sandy looking stuff across the way - that is the Caratunk Boat Launch, and I swim from there to this shore and back in the summer months. It is closer than it looks, I don't think it is 3/4 mile round trip.
